Canada Finds Glyphosate Contamination in Their Popular Food Products – Karma Yoga Daily
Chickpea and wheat-based products were among the highest contaminated because these crops are often sprayed with glyphosate just weeks before they are harvested. Canadian growers are concerned about current levels of contamination because of impacts on exports due to higher standards in other countries.
In a much larger study conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, glyphosate was found in more than 30 per cent of food products tested, and in some cases was above Health Canada’s “safe” limits of contamination. Two recent testing reports from the U.S., one conducted by Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project and one by EWG, have also discovered many popular U.S. brands are contaminated with glyphosate.
